Thank you to Jane! We had a wonderful time at her home this last weekend for my daughter's high school graduation. We had the grandparents stay with us and each had their own room. It was spacious for us all and backed up to a lovely forest. Having the corner lot proved to be private as well as quite. We even hosted a small barbecue for a few of my daughter's friends and they really enjoyed sitting on the back deck. It was great to have us all together for this joyful event.
Jane's house was perfect for our family vacation to DC. Our family of 8 comfortably fit and she even provided a pack-n-play crib for our baby. The location was close to DC to drive to everyday and about 10 minutes from Mt Vernon. The home was clean and very well kept. We were very pleased and if we ever go back to the Area, we'll definitely check with Jane first. I don't think we could have stayed at a better place, especially for our first AirBnB experience. Thank you Jane!
Great location for Alexandria and downtown DC. Easy to get to. Beautiful home - very comfortable and welcoming. Great end unit with beautiful deck and yard to sit in. Also, it's a short walk to a gorgeous nature preserve, which was a big bonus! We had a lovely stay! Would stay here again if we were in the area.
The townhouse is charming, clean and it easily accommodated our family. This was the perfect place for our family visit to DC. Shopping and public transportation are nearby and the adjacent open space makes this place feel very private. Jane was fantastic, helpful and left us a great binder of local information, resources and sights. If we were returning tomorrow, we'd definitely stay here again.
My large family of six had a wonderful stay here. The house was clean and accommodating to our needs. The shaded patio off the kitchen was a nice space to relax after a long day sightseeing in DC. I would highly recommend this house to anyone!
Jane's home was perfect for our family vacation. There was lots of room for everyone and it was extremely comfortable and cozy. Very convenient to the Metro. We wish we had been there when the trees were blooming because the surroundings off the back deck looked remarkable! We would definitely stay here again when traveling to D.C. Thanks, Jane!
The house was absolutely amazing! It was perfect for me and my family! We loved coming back to a warm place to stay when it was so cold and windy outside. Thank you so much for everything!
